entertainment acts for them and a new section for betweens, for the kids in between 12 and 16 where there was nothing to do before, we have 35-foot climbing obstacle courses they can do. >> something for everybody. >> and a bingy thing. $5 we shoot them off. >> i will see you out there. >> sure will jamie. >> thanks for coming in. 43rd annual towlson town festival. >> you can get a free beer too jamie. >> darn right. >> you are in that age range. no doubt about it, teaching kids to read em powers them, opens doors, gives them opportunity and adventure but they need the books to get there. mark firing is the director of baltimore reads a book bank. thanks for coming in. >> good morning. >> you do this every year. what is it? >> since 1996, and we collect books on this day, for children, to put into the book
bank and then from there we distribute them out to teachers, schools, families who otherwise can't afford them. >> one day saying bring your book, gently used, brand new. what are you guys looking for? >> any type of children's book, new or gently used as you said. it can range from baby board books to picture books up to high school level. we will take adult level books as well because we give those out to other organizations that need them. we will find a home for any book you give us but this day is primarily a focus to celebrate children throughout the city of baltimore. >> a cynical person might says the not my responsibility, why is this so important for you guys, what is the mission behind it? >> there are so many families that don't have books. the whole reason why we were founded, why the book bank was founded to get books into the home with the belief if you have a book in a home you are more apt to read. the stunning statistics is one in 300 children in the city has a book in the home.
we do everything we can to fight that, and get books into the home so kids have something to feel proud of and help with education. >> since you have been doing this since 1996 i suspect you have had feedback from families. what are you verde? >> we get thank -- what have you heard from them? >> we get thank yous randomly. someone left a note at my house they left books to bring because my neighbourhood was doing a book drive. people do realize it is important a lot of people take it upon themselves to help us and they will drop books off at books for kids or at the book bank. drop them off any time at the ball baltimore sun building. i love driving up and seeing boxes just left of kids books and then we immediately get them out to the schools. >> the goal is 75,000 books. >> yep. >> that is a lot of books. >> easily attained.
last year we did 77,000. we are lower this year. i think we will do a little more this year. we have generations involved, we get a lot of stuff in from people. the truth is most of us have books around the house that are probably sitting in a box or been on the shelf you know you are not going to touch again >> we will come out and pick them up too. if you have cases of books, go on the website and find out how to contact us we will pick up the books. >> someone might say why do one day events? why not collect them 365 days a year. >> celebrate our efforts. it is a day we get all the volunteers, schools that have collected books for us, we get them all together. we have a lot of fun. get lots of food, do the book sorting but it is what we are trying to do all yearlong. >> it is so sad to imagine a family without that bonding of reading so many people have
great memories of being read to or reading a book to their parents. >> yeah, it is unfortunately prevalent in a lot of homes and we see the kids eyes light up when they walk into the book bank. the little ones grab the rattiest book they can find. that is the one they want. >> the ones read a lot. >> let's put the information on the screen, the annual book for kids day going on this weekend : 9 to 2. all the information right there. a number to call if you need information as well as a website. if you missed it, don't have a pen in front of you. we will put it on our website. >> thanks for coming in. jamie. >> what do you know about lupus. you have heard about it but what do you know. we will learn about this auto immune disease, how it effects the entire body and why it is effecting more women than men. storm gear and promotional
isn't. >> true but this is a little more than your normal tired aches and pains. >> you knew there was more to what you were feeling. >> yeah. >> how many times did you go to the doctor? >> once after a number of years i finally went once to a rheumatologist and got diagnosed after the first round of blood tests. not everyone is so lucky some times it takes years to figure out it is lupus. >> what year were you in college. >> last semesterrer, senior year. >> you go to the doctor with your dad. >> yeah, i went to many other doctors prior to this appointment. >> the doctor says you have lupus you turn to your dad what is it. >> so what is it? >> well, the way they explained it to me, it is an auto immune disease that effects everyone differently effects your vital organs, you have fatigue, you can have rashes, joint
problems, the biggest thing is that it effects everyone differently. >> you got involved, that is the main thing. you have support group. how important is this walk this weekend? >> very important. for those who aren't in remission and still have aches and pains, we need to keep raising money to find new drugs and help better treatments and get a cure out there. >> monica you see familiar faces from years past but new faces coming into this. >> absolutely. this year will be my first year we have a team together, so my family, i have coworkers, friends, coming from pennsylvania, delaware, to support me. just because they see you know what i have been through. last year i had problems with my kidneys, if my doctors didn't keep up with me, i didn't keep up with my doctors appointments i would be on
dialysis today. >> kathy, what do you say to someone just newly diagnosed with lupus? >> um, it can get better. time and patience, working with your doctor, just take it day by day, but you can get better and you can start to feel like you can lead a normal life. >> monica, what is your advice? you know, as soon as you find it, you go to the computer. >> no, because that terrifies you. biggest thing, keep a positive attitude. keep a positive attitude, your family and friends close, that support makes a world of difference but keep a positive attitude. >> this is how we can be positive walking and being a team effort. my good friend, deer friend scott garceau, his daughter we have all rallied around. he will be out there. the mc. just tell him not to speak so long. 4th annual, baltimore alr walk.

it is easily preventable but could turn deadly for infants. dr. richard bester tells us one family learned first hand. >> it was what we always wanted and it handed. >> little callie was a miracle. in 2009 katie got pregnant again. a success. >> once they said we were in the clear we jumped for joy. just giddy all the time. >> it was an easy, healthy pregnancy. her doctor made sure she had flu shots. six weeks before she was due, callie grace was born christmas day. >> she came home january 5th. she was healthy and then got a cough and things went downhill. >> the pediatrician checked her and found nothing wrong but the cough continued. worried parents took her back to the doctor during this visit she stopped breathing her breathing was restored and she was rushed to hospital but two days later when she stopped
breathing again she could not be saved. she was 38 days old. she some how caught whooping cough, a highly contagious bacterial infection. since the introduction of the vaccine in the 40s. the disease was thought to be well controlled in this country but in 2005 there were 25,000 cases. new mothers are encouraged to be encouraged before leaving the hospital. >> no idea a whooping cough vaccination was one for mothers to have. no one mentioned it to us, brought it up to us, no one gave us a clue. >> now they are speaking out urging mothers to speak out and vaccinate themselves and their children against a forgotten deadly disease >> we want to help some body else so parents don't suffer the loss of their miracle baby. every new mom should be required to get this
vaccination. we do it in callis name. >> dr. besser reporting. there is a rise nationwide in whooping cough cases. it is a good idea for parents to check with doctors about vaccinations for whooping cough and many others megan. >> yeah, that is such an appropriate story this week there is a push to get your kids into the to doctors office. why this campaign exists. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> this week is all about getting those kids their shots. >> yes. it is very important for children to receive recommended immunizations and receive them at the recommended scheduled times. i think there has been a push for kids to not have all the routine immunizations because of fears of autism, problems with people thinking there is mercury in vaccinethere is no good evidence behind any of that. it is important for children to get it. >> you do hear it all the time. you have heard it from parents
who say i am very concerned. what do you say and how do you i guess balance those fears. >> well, i let them know that one of the main things is that my own children get their vaccinations on the routine schedule that we follow, and i don't think there is any evidence -- the study published has been retracted and there are a lot of problem s with that study. no proof that there is any link to autism whatsoever. >> during a commercial break you said, there is a greater fear of what would happen if you didn't vaccinate your children, than if you did. >> i think, you know, folks are worried about immunizations causing potential issues, but we know if you don't immunize there is not just potential but a deadly disease that can occur, pertussis in young infants can kill them. that dog doesn't like it. >> maybe that dog just got its vaccination itself. >> yeah, but i think it is one of these things where we don't
reelize, we were talking about polio, we don't realize how bad it was because we are not in a generation that experienced it. if we don't vaccinate we will end up with a lot more problems. >> are there certain ones you would say you have to get? is it all the ones your doctor -- >> i would say all the ones your doctor recommended, repertory of immunizations should be given. i think a lot of times folks feel okay i am an adult i don't need vaccinations any more. i talk to my patients about that all the time. i say when was your last tetanus shot. folks don't think about that. as far as pertussis we have new recommendations as an adolescent or adult if you haven't received it before you not only get tetanus booster but a one time dose of pertussis with it. that is to help not for yourself, because if you or i got pertussis we would get a cough that would last 6 to 8 weeks just an annoyance but exposed to a child without
immunity to it they could end up in the hospital and it could be fatal. >> what about the series of not only autism but the bad batch of vaccines? you occasionally hear those stories. >> i think there is not much to that. the bad batch, really, it is not typically anything that is going to hurt anyone. i don't think there is any credence to that. fda does quite rigorous testing on all vaccines there has been more testing for vaccines than many medications we are released on the market. >> we need to say just talk to your doctor. >> definitely. don't be afraid. immunizations are very important. >> thanks for coming in. >> that cans for having me. >> that noise was from dr. fairmonty he stubbed his toe on the way. we will take your calls next if you have questions about your
it's thursday which means we have a great animal from the spca. >> this is carly a mixed breed at maryland spca they are trying to get her a home. give them a call. hopefully we can get her a home. they had her just a couple days. >> she is a cuddler. >> she is needy, loves to be cuddled, wants to be near you. >> a great companion. the number is on your screen. we will take some calls i believe rose from baltimore is on the line. hi. >> hi. >> how are you? having troubles with your dog. >> yes, i am. >> the dog weighs 25 pounds? >> yes, she does. >> so we are about 20% over weight, maybe 30% over weight. >> she is 10 pounds over weight. but she should be 15. >> okay. do you have any other pets? >> no.
>> okay so truly a matter of controls exactly how much food you are giving this dog. you can buy some less active food in the grocery store and have some prescription localry foods and i would suggest you get one of the prescription foods from your veterinarian. increase exercise this dog is doing and decrease food. it is really important just to make sure you are giving a minimal amount. unfortunately we have a tendency to over feed our pets because we love them and thing they are wonderful, respond to us so well but decrease the food. have your pet's thyroid levels checked that could be a cause for the over weight but the most important thing is you decide you want to get this pet's food under control and decrease it down to the level that you get weight loss. >> what size of food? how much? >> there are some prescription foods we have a restricted calorie we use for mine and
hills science diet. either one of those will be what i use. call us at the hospital and we will tell you the nameses and get you a bag of food if you need it. >> donna your dog has an ear infection? >> yes. she has had this now for several months and we've -- she has been on two different type of medications for her ears and it doesn't seem to go away she keeps shaking her head. >> has your veterinarian prescribed the medicine or you just picked it up yourself? >> no, prescription. >> okay. >> both times. >> okay. continue -- you need to go in every two weeks and have them recheck the ears he will eventually come up he may have to culture those ears but he should be able to pick out anant biotic and fun gal infection that should kill that ear infection and get things under control. be persistent. stay with us and have rechecks. >> can i ask another question.
the first time she was in she was under anaethesia and they said it was down in the lower ear canal. then it didn't clear up so we went back to a different vet and he said it was in the canal. >> see the same veterinarian continuously if you bounce around to other vets you will get different opinions and medicines and not get things taken care of as well. a dog's ear canal is 3 or 4 inches long it shapes in the form of an l and hard to get the medicine down deep into the ears. continue to recheck with your vet, make sure he teaches you how to get the medicine in well and get it under control. >> don't forget about this baby girl needs a home. a new study came out spouses say my dog listens better than my spouse. if yarned a good ear. >> this is a good one. >> there is the number.
maryland spca. >> all right coming up, taking attendance in school has gone high tech. how one school district plans to count your kid. >> mettle gentleman, they are on -- three gentlemen, they are on air, summer project. wait until you hear their road trip coming up next [ male announcer ] it's a price that starts low and stays low.
